    Application Details

    I applied through other source. The process took 2 daysinterviewed at Kiewit Corporation in November 2014.

    Interview Details

    I was contacted by HR and asked some primary questions about my experience and why I want to leave my present company. We discussed many aspects of SPI Admin. I would received an email for a "camera" interview. I guess they wanted to see my face. My resume wasn't enough. Then, I would have more detail question from the Engineer Manager.

    Interview Questions
    • The camera interview was one of the most strangest interview I have ever experience. This device will only gives you 1 minute to reflect on the question and there's not going back or "do-over". The questions were nothing pertaining to the position I was applying for.

      After, I get to talk to the Engineer Manager and he was describing a position that's considerable lower than the one I was applying. I asked him about the SPI Admin and he was discussing about design. I wasn't sure they needed a Admin or designer.

      After the interview, HR contacted me to find out how my interview went. For the most part, it was positive. We then starting talking about the company and benefits. The then threw the bomb on me. Although, all the time the position was for a direct full time position, he told me that he would preferred that I go contract for 90 days. This infuriated me because after all the discussions and interviews, at the end, they decided to tell me that I have to go contract for 90 days; with no benefits.

      To me this was a ploy to eliminate or weed out candidates for any reason. In my case, it seems to be racial motivated or age. I answered the questions. I was up front and truthful with them. Any yet and very suspicious, they tell me at the end that I have to go thru probation.

      The HR person first told me that everyone goes thru this probational period; even he went thru it. That statement is what made me suspicious. If he went thru it, why didn't he tell me in the beginning? Why did he tell me in the end? He used it as a leverage.

      So candidates, beware!

    SAP Analyst Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Bellevue, NE
    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Bellevue, NE
    Application Details

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took a weekinterviewed at Kiewit Corporation in September 2014.

    Interview Details

    Interview process was done by webcam. I am not familiar with this tpe of interview and would appreciate a one on one meeting, face to face. I prefer to show my work on paper, certificates, degrees, letters of acknowledgement rather than try to answer 4 questions in an alloted amount of time.

    Interview Questions
    • The questions were not difficult for me or unexpected. What was unexpected was there were only 4 questions and I was being timed per question. On webcam interviews you cannot touch the screen for the next question or timer to record your answer with your fingernail. It has to be the pad of your fingers to work. You don't get a second chance if you make a mistake on the webcam interview.   Answer Question

    Project Manager Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    Application Details

    interviewed at Kiewit Corporation in August 2014.

    Interview Details

    I was contacted by a Kiewit Recruiter after applying for a posting online. Without any explanation of the job role, duties, or responsibilities, I was asked to complete a video interview (computer-based, one-way interaction).

    After a few days I was told that they were interested and we setup an on-site interview. They called me the morning of the interview and told me they had to cancel it due to an unexpected compromise with the Hiring Manager, which I could perfectly understand, and I was told we would reschedule the interview in a few days. However, this happened over 2 months ago, and every email or phone call to the Recruiter has been ignored so far.

    If Kiewit treats prospective employees this way prior to bringing them onboard I cannot imagine how it is like to work with them once you are hired. Learning experience!

    Interview Questions
    • The worst interview experience throughout my professional career. One-way interaction, allowing them to ask all the questions and then ignoring phone calls/emails. They believe their time is more valuable than yours.   Answer Question

    Interview Details

    They called right away looking to setup an interview after I applied through their website. Did the in person interview and never heard anything back at all. Nothing, no rejection letter or anything. I tried to call in twice and they acted as they had no idea who I was even when I talked to the same person who called me.

    I applied through college or university – interviewed at Kiewit Corporation.

    Interview Details

    Submitted Resume during Career Fair where a recruiter looked over it. An email was sent to take a few tests then received an email for a phone screening. During the screening the woman asked if I was looking at any other companies when I said yes, she wanted to know the companies and starting putting the other companies down. Thought it was very unprofessional.

    Business Manager Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    Interview Details

    The interview process went very quickly and was very well done. They even fly you out to whatever district you would be working in. However, I believe they really lead you on. I was given the understanding that we essentially had to just show up to the final interview and get the job. That was not the case.

    Interview Questions
    • They were all basic interview questions. No real difficult or unexpected ones. All of them were exactly what you would expect from an employer. "Tell us about yourself, etc" The most unexpected question as probably one that tried to show that I was an analytical person. The question was something along the signs of if a project was running below expected completion what do you need to do to have it complete on time.   Answer Question
